Picture: The farmed summit of Ballinacorbeg from the NW
One way to reach this is from the SW climbing mostly in a forest and starting at T'rilnd (T1780 9906). Proceed until the third turn to the right A (T176 994) and break out of the forest to the west. (If there are animals in the fields we recommend you continue on the track to the east side of the forest.) Head across the fields to the summit which has a trig pillar.
Another way of reaching the summit starts at Derrylossary Church Yard where there is very limited parking at around DrLoss (O1834 0133). We would recommend asking permission for this route before starting.

Surprisingly the summit fields are in very good condition for such a high altitude and actively used for sheep farming, so cross with care not to annoy the animals particularly in spring. Dogs are out of the question. We met a farmer, explained what we were doing and he was ok with it, but we would not assume that visitors would always be welcome.

There are great views of nearby summits such as Scarr and Knocknacloghoge. Round trip time is about 1h20.

Picture: View south to Croaghanmoira
Worth a brief visit
by Bunsen7 17 Jul 2017
Pleasantly surprised by this, could clearly see Lugnaquilla and Croaghanmoira, as well as numerous other summits, slightly awkward entry into the fields just west of the forest which don't appear to be currently used for grazing and are being overtaken by gorse. Landowner appears to have placed a huge drum of water in the main clearing, perhaps to ward off trespassers, so some investigation needed to exit onto fields but simple passage thereafter. Met nobody to enquire about access.

Sheep grazing around the trig pillar. Great views, allow c1hr round trip.

Noted that forest track entrance may be used by farm vehicles to access east side of hill, do not block. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1107/comment/19607/

Picture: The Great Sugar Loaf and the Trig Pillar.
Green slopes in the morning, snappers delight.
by simon3 9 Feb 2014
The top of this hill with its sheep cropped grass and gentle rounded slope has great potential for uncluttered middle distance photography. Further out there are views of Scarr and particularly a different angle on Knocknacloghoge.
A farmer we met told us that on clear day the coast of Wales is visible. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1107/comment/15840/

Picture: Sugar Loaf as seen from top
Ouch ouch ouch...
by Colin Murphy 16 May 2019
Climbed this hill on a fine, early summer's day, following the meandering track indicated at point A. When it emerged into a grassy pasture with the summit about 500m away to the NE, I looked about for a farmer, but could find none to ask permission, so proceeded cautiously, trying to keep clear of the sheep and cattle. Had to cross three barbed wire fences, one electrified (I discovered) and cross a gorse-filled ditch, and spent the final three hundred metres pulling gorse needles from my hands and arms. The top is a broad, grassy mound surmounted by a trig pillar, which offers good views all round, including one of the Sugar Loaf in the distance. 1 hour (painful) return journey.
